PechaKucha at 17th Sydney Biennale

Some great news coming out of Sydney today, with artistic director David Elliott unveiling some of the highlights from this year's Sydney Biennale (May 12 to August 1). Part of the reveal is that the event will be partnering up with PechaKucha for a series of nights, to be held at the SuperDeluxe@Artspace, a temporary venue that will act as an offshoot of Tokyo's very own SuperDeluxe, the birth place of PechaKucha.

SuperDeluxe

At every PechaKucha Night in Tokyo, one of the staff from SuperDeluxe -- the birthplace of PKN -- does a presentation on the amazing lineup of events that one can expect to see there, usually covering a few that were recently held, and then previewing upcoming events. And don't forget, SuperDeluxe will have a secondary home for 3 months in Australia this summer, as part of this year's Biennale of Sydney, with lots of events, exhibitions, and PKNs planned.

17th Biennale of Sydney Identity

As we've mentioned a few times already, PechaKucha is a proud participant of this year's 17th Biennale of Sydney, both in terms of providing a regular series of PK events throughout the duration of the event (which goes until August 1), and with the inclusion of a temporary SuperDeluxe event space -- for those who don't know, SuperDeluxe is home to PKN in Tokyo, and also where it all started. We bring this up because the Creative Review blog has posted an extensive look at the identity for the festival, created by Barnbrook, as well as the event catalogue.

PechaKucha Polaroids

Remo Camerota is all over PechaKucha these days. On top of appearing at the last two PechaKucha Nights in Tokyo -- with his own presentation on his new book Drainspotting at Vol. 73, and then popping on stage at last week's Vol. 74 during Vivienne U.H. Doan's "Beautified Taboo" presentation -- he should also be talking about his latest projects (of which he has tons) at an upcoming PKN in Sydney. What you see pictured is an example of Remo's "Polaroid Project," in which he composes three-part polaroid portraits of people -- he's already had a show in New York, with famed photographer Nobuyoshi Araki as one of his subjects. Above, our dear PK co-founder Mark Dytham, keeping things covered. Below, yours truly.
